Release Year: 2012
What’s the story? I moved to Miami in need of a new beginning. I spent almost a year in a treatment center and I learned to speak about my emotions (sometimes that’s what it takes). It was almost like learning how to walk again. It was truly a beautiful and positive experience. I got out and stayed sober for the next 2 years. But this was the first time I was on my own musically speaking, having always been in some form of a band. So I started writing my own lyrics, a job that I always left to my bandmate at the time and childhood best friend, Luis Del Valle (Buscabulla). For the first time there was no second opinion. I think this was the beginning of me finding “my voice”. To my surprise, the songs that I wrote were honest and profound and not half bad. Everything I was writing about was very introspective. I suddenly felt the need to move people. I wanted to let them know where I had been, where I was, etc. So I made a pop record in which all of the songs could be singles in their own way. I went as poppy as I could. I wanted to reach as many people as possible. It’s an album of hope and moving forward.
